Tunoi tribunal probes secretaries, summons editors

Three Secretaries stationed both at the Supreme Court and Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero’s office have denied ever having seen former journalist Geoffrey Kiplagat visit either Supreme Court Judge Philip Tunoi or Governor Kidero.

The testimony of Tunoi secretary Sophia Nyai contradicted claims by Kiplagat that he visited the Judge’s office at least ten times and she had even served him team.

While both denied ever seeing Kiplagat at the office, Njoki Ndungu’s, secretary found herself in a tight spot when queried about a statement by the Judiciary’s Ombudsman Kennedy Bidali to the JSC committee giving a conflicting account.

Sophia said that being in Court, she would sometimes advise you the Judge is not available, in that case she would not record.

Earlier, the tribunal directed editors from the Daily Nation to appear before it and answer questions raised over their reportage of the proceedings – when Kidero’s personal aide John Osogo appeared. A story on the Daily suggested that Osogo and Kiplagat had discussed Tunoi’s ruling. The editors and journalist who covered the tribunal will now appear before the tribunal on Tuesday.
